Stormy Tides

A few months after I pointed out to whomever would listen, the weatherman claims we have a fully fledged El Niño shuffling into our lovely biosphere. For us, at the bottom end of Africa, it generally means more placid weather and a higher likelihood of droughts. So once that prediction was put into the public sphere the weather pulled a fast one on our forecaster friends and showed up with a few unusual early Spring storms.


‘The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm’


‘Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray’ Lord Byron


‘Live each moment as if this is the last moment, put all at stake’ Osho


There are things that even the wise fail to do,
While the fool hits the point.
Unexpectedly discovering the way to life in the midst of death,
He burst out in hearty laughter
